Spring on the York College campus

Lauren Henry '89

Senior Principal Operational Specialist
Johnson & Johnson
"York College got me where I am today by giving me a good foundation. I was a Speech Communication major, and the classes I took really taught me how to speak (and even got rid of my Upstate New York/Central Jersey accents!). I was heavily involved in the radio station and also on the forensics (competitive speaking) team. If you're a good speaker, you can pretty much talk yourself in and out of any situation. This was helpful getting me through my long and winding career path."

Current City: West Chester, PA

YCP Degree: BA Speech Communication
